Flashback Five Linky Party 1st Timer

No school today...for the kiddos anyway, so you get for Flashback Five Thursday.  Every Friday so many of you link up, that I wanted to join the fun!  You can too.

Saturday is my last day of volleyball and is an all day tournament.  So last night the team came over to my house and we watched volleyball videos, made posters, and painted our nails to match our shirts.  Then got a team photo.  They crack me up!
Wednesday, I was out for a Right Brain Training and left a "How Well Do You Know Your Teacher" Quiz.  Miss Trayers started this inspiration and the responses had me laughing out loud!

This one is from my Giants fan.  We are I am a Dodger fan.  I had to go look up 
Mike Krukow....apparently he is a broadcaster for the Giants.
This one is spot on. snowdays, only for 80 sunny days, since we never get them during the school year.  I tell my class how we all have to work to keep our class clean.  I didn't spend years at school to pick up after them:-)...although being a maid, I would probably make more money.
Half my class mentioned Josh Groban!  Also, apparently I love Uncle Jesse, cuz I say capesh all the time.
Every one of them mentioned We are in the middle of studying Portland, Oregon.  At the end of the month we are going on a field trip downtown.  During class we have been making maps and adding interesting locations.  Soon groups will be choosing locations and highlighting the most effective route for seeing them.  On field trip day, they use the map as their tour guide.
And we have been making posters of all the intersting things you can do and see in Downtown Portland.
Portland has a famous statue, named Portlandia.  It is the 2nd largest freestanding copper statue in the world...Statue of Liberty being the largest.  One of my students wrote a comic for us about statues in Portland.
Happy Friday,
